The Next Big Thing:

I was asked to participate in the blog hop by Gay Ingram. For those of you who don't know what a blog hop is, I think it would be best to quote Bridget O'Hare, since can't think of a better way to put it. 

"We are blog hopping our way through some new reads.  For those who aren’t familiar with a blog hop . . . to me it’s kind of like a treasure hunt – once you find something on one blog you hop on over to the next blog link for more treasure.  In this case, the treasure is a wealth of new and exciting books.  Some are still being written, some are just being released.  Either way, for fiction lovers . . . it’s a treasure."

In this particular hop we answer 10 questions. Hope you enjoy.

Q & A

1. What is the working title of your book?

At the moment I am working on two different books. The fourth book in My Daughter of Prophecy series titled COVETED MAGIC and a serial called THE CABIN.

2. Where did the idea come from for the book?

Mostly they start with dreams. I think I have a vivid imagination and it really gets going when I am sleeping. .

3. What genre does your book fall under?

The genre my books fall under would be Romance. But it blends into many others. So let’s call it Paranormal/Romantic/Suspense.

4. Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

Oh, wow. Not that is a tough one. 
In The Daughter of Prophecy Series the main characters are Seamus and Megan. 
I would like to see Seamus played by Peter Facinelli or Orlando Bloom.
I think Bryce Dallas Howard would make a good Megan. 

The secondary main characters in Coveted Magic are Megan’s uncle Sean and his prospected mate, Deidre. I would have to say Ewan McGregor and Jennifer Hewitt would need to play them.

As for The Cabin, Jack should be played by Matthew Morrison, and Stephanie by Julia Stiles. Since this will be a trilogy, the other male characters should be played by Greg Vaughn as Joe and Ben Affleck as Mark.

5. What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Coveted Magic:  After finding you she is the Daughter of Prophecy, will Megan be able to beat Mallaidh, who is trying to destroy the Tuatha Dé Danann or have Mallaidh’s powers become to strong? 

The Cabin: Can Jack McKenzie find a way to save the woman trapped in the vanishing cabin?

6. Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

White Bird Publications, LLC, publishes my books.

7. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

Usually I will finish the first draft during NaNoWriMo. Of course then it takes months to get it up to par before it goes to the publisher.

8. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

I would have to say Karen Moning’s “Fever” series. We write about the same group of entities called the Tuatha Dé Danann. She writes then as the villains and I have them the heroes.

9. Who or What inspired you to write this book?

I love reading paranormal romances and in my travels to Ireland, I always visit Newgrange. One time I was driving home from Chicago to Texas and had to pull over as the beginning of the story flowing through my head.  I put it away for almost three years. I had a dream and pulled out the story again. At that point, I had to figure out whom to use for the story and naturally, Newgrange popped into my head. I researched the mythology associated with Newgrange and found the Tuatha. The rest I guess is history.

10. What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

The Daughter of Prophecy Series is the epic story of good vs evil, but more than that it is a love story not only of man and woman, but of family. Family is a strong theme throughout all of my books and ties the characters together in a way mere circumstance and commonality could never achieve. The bond continues through the generations and even beyond death itself.
